Bio When long-running Montreal punks Issue Sixteen played their final show to three disaffected kids at an all ages warehouse in Halifax, Nova Scotia, it was an unfitting and unfair end to a band that spent five years travelling Canada from coast to coast, through most of Europe and the forests of Russia. The band’s story is a familiar one to any roadworn Canadian rocker; heroes in their hometown, pockets of dedicated fans across the country, and, eventually, crashing into a wall and dissolving in uncertainty in an unfamiliar town.

Bio When long-running Montreal punks Issue Sixteen played their final show to three disaffected kids at an all ages warehouse in Halifax, Nova Scotia, it was an unfitting and unfair end to a band that spent five years travelling Canada from coast to coast, through most of Europe and the forests of Russia. The band’s story is a familiar one to any roadworn Canadian rocker; heroes in their hometown, pockets of dedicated fans across the country, and, eventually, crashing into a wall and dissolving in uncertainty in an unfamiliar town. The events of the final Issue Sixteen show in Halifax profoundly inform the start of la Querelle’s debut, Welcome to my Battleship. Led by the duel vocals of guitarists Mathieu Lachapelle and Jonathan Cadotte, along with bassist Pascal Rivest, Guillaume Boucher (guitar) and Jean-Philippe St-Laurent (drums), Welcome to my Battleship traces Lachapelle’s personal journey following that fateful night in Halifax. Holing up retreat in a basement studio in the woods outside of Montreal, the new group began crafting their sound. The band built an epic post-rock reminiscent of acts like Mogwai and the Mercury Program with a building, driving rhythm section.

The songs are sung with the heartfelt, poignant lyricism of classic ‘90s emo bands like Elliott and Sunny Day Real Estate. la Querelle honed in on a massive sound playing as loud as possible in the middle of a forest. With three guitarists each adding their own distinct instrumental voice to the band’s richly textured songs, cuts like “Montreal, Montreal” retain a sonic richness that isn’t studio trickery; it’s the honest, unaffected sound of a group of friends cranking up the decibels and playing as fiercely as they can. Their epic six-song debut via New Romance for Kids Records brought a new enthusiasm for playing together and touring pervades Welcome to my Battleship, as it marks a band moving past its former troubles and breaking into something new, for themselves and for their audience.
